Mrs. Diaz from Chicago IL is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten: Keen on Clean

My students need spare uniforms, Band-Aids, tissues, paper towels, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and baby wipes to have a hygiene emergency kit in our classroom.

My Students

Our school, located in Chicago's north side, has a 92% Hispanic population. Nearly all of our students come from low-income households. Despite this, they come to school with smiles on their faces, eager to learn something new.

My kindergarten students deserve the opportunity to receive the best education they can get in order to thrive throughout their lives.

While our school provides as much as it possibly can in order to ensure that students are successful, our district budget often limits what schools can provide.

My Project

Accidents are an inevitable part of everyone's day. In kindergarten, our accidents (and the mess that accompanies them) vary greatly, but they usually result in some sort of stain. Although our school has extra uniforms in case of emergencies, they seem to have bigger sizes on hand, which swallow some of my smaller kindergartners. When small sizes have run out, students have had to sit in dirty clothes while they wait for their parents to bring them something to change into.

There is nothing worse than seeing the embarrassed face of a child who just had an accident at school and wishes he/she were invisible.

I am requesting uniforms in a variety of sizes to ensure that none of my students have to go through the ordeal of sitting in soiled clothes. The paper towels, disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizer will help us clean up any mess that can be a product of an accident in the classroom. Tissues are also necessary in any Chicago classroom due to our harsh winters, which result in runny or congested noses. Lastly, the Band-Aid assortment will come in handy whether students get small paper cuts or larger cuts/wounds.

These resources will help my students understand that no matter what accidents may happen, school is a place where they will be safe and well cared for.
